versus liberals, democrats versus republicans, the nra versus the gun control lobby, you know, for most of us, it's impossible to figure out what's really going on. they say, you know, numbers don't lie, people do. and if there is any debate that proves that, i think it's the gun debate. >> rick: who should be heading up this discussion? we have joe biden at his panel and they're expected to issue their recommendation to the president, the beginning of this coming week. but in a perfect world or in your perfect world, susan, who would be heading up sort of an examination of the policies and the laws that we have on the books now and what we may possibly be able to do that could lead to a decrease in gun violence? >> you know what got me into this was there was a public health study that came out last week by a panel of experts, not democrats and republicans, but criminal justice researchers and epidemiologists and public health people and it found that the death rate in this country for people under 50, the mortality rate was the worst in the world among rich countries. i started readin

are talking about reasonable gun reforms that are supported by gun owners and a vast majority of nra members. reforps that we are talking about are not designed to take guns from people . they are to keep them out of the hans of criminals and out of the hands of people who is got mental illness . as a mayor and any mayor would say the same thing. our number one priority is to insure the safety of our community. guns in the hands of dangerous people and high ammo-clips is not safe for our community. i don't believe the second amendment is what we should be concerned about. i know in the least the proposals we put on the table . i am proud of the president to take action . i heard the mayor's concern about people with mental illness and our larger cultural issues and i think he had an important point to make. he should realize that is what the president did this week. he released the cvc and allowing them to investigate the impact of video games and films on violent behavior. that is something that was not happening last week and because the president took action can now happen. >> you are on
